Who makes decisions that affect Lakeside Lutheran in addition to the campus administrative personnel (such as principal, vice-principal and department heads)?
Lakeside Lutheran High School is controlled by two boards, the General Board and the Board of Regents.
How are General Board members chosen?
The General Board is composed of representatives from every one of the 31 federated congregations. Every congregation is permitted to send two delegates for each 500 communicant members, three delegates if the number of communicants ranges from 501-1000, and a maximum of four delegates for congregations with over 1,000 communicants. The minimum number of delegates from any congregation is two. In addition, one pastor from each federated congregation and one male teacher from its parish school (if applicable) may also be voting members. Additional pastors and teachers may attend General Board meetings as advisory members.
General Board delegates are elected or appointed by each congregation according to its own method. The terms of delegates vary according to the wishes of each congregation. Each congregation is asked to regularly inform its communicant membership of its General Board delegates. Currently, there is no public listing of these names.
What does the General Board do?
The General Board elects members to the Board of Regents, approves the annual budget and tuition amounts, and issues calls for all Lakeside teachers. It receives regular reports from the committee chairmen of the Board of Regents and ex officios. In many cases, the General Board is also the body that gives final approval to school policies. The General Board meets quarterly in August, November, February, and May.
What is the Board of Regents (BOR)?
The Board of Regents consists of fourteen members, thirteen of whom are elected by the General Board and the fourteenth (the chairman of the Resource Development Committee) is appointed by the Board of Regents and then ratified by the General Board.
The Board of Regents oversees the daily operations of the school working in conjunction with Lakeside's administration. Members of the Board of Regents are listed annually in the Lakeside's Student Directory.
What does the BOR do?
The Board of Regents is composed of five committees:
Each committee meets monthly except in December and July. (The Board of Regents also follows this schedule.) Each committee works on business items relevant to its mission and purpose, sending those items for ratification to the appropriate board(s) as outlined in the board policy manual.
How and/or why would I approach a board member?
Board members - both from the Board of Regents and the General Board - and the school administration always welcome comments and concerns from parents and other federation constituents. If you need to identify the best person to contact for a board matter, call Lakeside at (920) 648-2321 for further information.
